Kristen Ciccarelli is the internationally bestselling author of the Iskari series. Her first book, The Last Namsara, debuted on the UK’s children and YA chart, was one of Indigo’s Best Book for Teens, and has been translated into 12 languages. Before writing books for a living, she worked as an artisanal baker, an indie bookseller, and a ceramic artist. These days she resides in a blustery seaside cove with her blacksmith and her rescue dog. She likes her coffee dark, her weather broody, and her house warmed by a wood fire.

“Then may Death send his worst. Cold to freeze the love in my heart. Fire to burn my memories to ash. Wind to force me through the gates. Time to wear my loyalty away. I'll wait for you at Death's gate.”
Kristen Ciccarelli, The Last Namsara

“Once there was a girl who was drawn to wicked things.
Things like forbidden, ancient stories.
It didn’t matter that the old stories killed her mother. It didn’t matter that they’d killed many before her. The girl let the old stories in. She let them in eat away at her heart and turn her wicked.”
Kristen Ciccarelli, The Last Namsara

“You could die," she whispered. "Everything dies," he whispered back. "I'm afraid of so much more than dying.”
Kristen Ciccarelli, The Last Namsara
